Great app, a must have for teachers and animators!

I used this app for a personal project, and though with some wrong commands that I'd do it would crash, once I learned what not to do (for example, don't press the "-" on the Frame part many times, or else the app crashes), I was able to complete my project smoothly. I bought the Pro version right on this test run since I see SO much potential, so many things I can do both as a teacher and animator/producer. I would be able to make quick sketches like the ones in commercials, or I can do critiques and give feedback on certain aspects of a project, and I can teach certain things. It's great that it has voice support (have not tried it yet), as well as music support (haven't tried it yet). I was able to import many pictures and it worked great. The only thing I'd like better is for the UI to be more intuitive: right now it's way too confusing. Still give 5 stars since it's such a powerful little app. Should be polished and then should be on Featured Apps for sure!

I found this app by accident looking for a touch friendly mp4 player (did not find one that works). It's incredibly smooth and fast and touch friendly. And though the interface is very clean, it's surprisingly advanced and has all the features I need. Whoever did this knew exactly what he/she was doing, both in terms of recording lessons, and in terms of creating an app for tablet mode. The cleverness lies in the details that you discover along the way. Only thing is that it might be hard for people to figure out how it works and what you can do with it, but that's usually how it is when you've got a clean interface in a touch friendly app. No room for the clutter. Also it needs a paus button, and a laser pointer would be nice. I will definitely replace my powerpoint recording with this app. And will gladly pay for images, as soon as I figure out how Windows store works.

A pause feature would be nice

This is a very useful app. The main thing I would add is the ability to pause a recording and re-start it. I am recording videos for a class I'm teaching, and I could make the videos run a lot more smoothly if I could pause and re-start. By in large though, this app is great!

I have put a lot of time and energy into the app

I love the idea of this app but there are so many bugs!!! It is crashing a lot and I know its not my computer its that app. I doesn't let you watch the video when you save it to the app. when you are watching the video you made it fades randomly... not cool. I am always afraid that it is going to crash or not save when I'm done like it dose all the time but for now its all I can afford.

good, needs multiple pages option

add new page option to quick recording and this app would become an awesome note taking app.

Stable and efficient

I use iXplain to teach in class, and here is how I would compare it to its main competitiors: Explain Everything + iXplain is much more stable. EE is slow and tends to crash with too many pages. + iXplain has pen-pressure-sensitivity support that EE does not have. - iXplain can basically only import images, whereas EE can import many others formats. PowerPoint: + Animated inking, which PP does not have - PP is much better with adjustment of animated objects Note on "Unexpected Error": If you see this error, try changing the directories for saved recordings and videos. You can do by clicking into each category from the home screen of iXplain, swipe from top edge of screen to bring out the menu, and click "change directory". The error should go away once you set the folders.

Great Recording Device

I am a high school math teacher and I use this to record myself making videos of math. This is a great option for recording a screen write... I use the quick recording much more then the base recording. Ive used the base recording once, and it was a little more complicated then I thought and ended up recording for half an hour without sound. I have liked everything that I have used so far. Would recommend.

love the new features

I like how you have an infinite whiteboard to work on while creating a video. I wish there was a paint fill feature instead of just a pen.

Does not work on my surface pro 3 after update

I paid for the pro. I am a math teacher who posts videos for her students, and this software was really useful. After the 14 update, I cannot make any more recordings. When I click on "create a quick recording" or "create a base recording" nothing happens. Please fix this so I can help my students.
